great new problems

Andy, Percy and co have come up with the goods again. Part way through our complete refit, we've already got some fantastic problems. Andy brought several of the volumes used at Cliffhanger last week, and these are giving some interesting moves, particularly the big tufas.

spring freshness

A bit late I know, but our shoe cleansing machine has finally arrived! It seems to be doing the job and the rock shoes are taking on a more pleasant fragrance.

prize giving, new problems

We are holding the prizegiving for the spring aggregate on Thursday evening at 7.30- the wall will be open as usual, and we'll publish a full list of winners.
After that, the resetting of routes starts on Monday, and will be finished by Tuesday. Lots more new problems to have a go at, with hopefully some volumes. Interestingly, we have four out of the five routesetters at the weekend's British Bouldering Championships setting the new problems. (we would have had all five, but Jamie Cassidy can't make it- he's keen to come and set some problems in future though, as he helped build the wall in the first place.)

First NICAS certificates issued

Well done to James and Tehya for being the first to achieve a NICAS award from our centre. We'll be running more training and assessment sessions both during Childrens Club and on Friday evenings for older candidates.
